I suppose they are waiting to finish the ground level and start building the core.

From what i've seen on this tower's framing system (don't quote me on this) it will have a reinforced concrete core, with structural steel inlay, tied into concrete encased steel outrigger trusses, (tied to certain perimeter columns, also concrete encased, diagonal trusses from the core to the perimeter supports aprox. every 8 to 12 floors, with the rest of the framing, structural steel with corrigated steel/concrete floor system, some of the structural drawings or diagrams show intense use of truss system's, some large for general load's (wind, live, and dead, load's) plus many secondery smaller trusses, (for architectural features at the roof area, and belt trusses at various locations for load sheer stability. And many other diagonal braces.

A very intense framing system to say the least, But based on what i've seen on this tower, it seem's far to intracate a framing system to be all poured in place reinforced concrete. But in fact very similar to the framing system used on the Petronas towers.

When is the core actually going to start rising? It seems to be taking forever just to get above ground level.

Normally, in this phase, building's core is very slow. From underground level to now they have being using "traditional" formwork (not autoclimbing system). Now they have to set the autoclimbing formwork system. They will spend some days setting it, and for the first levels they will take some more time than usual, to see that everything it's correct. Then, it will grow fast
That doesn't happen in steel structures, onece they reach the ground level, they can put steel beams and columns all the time, without waiting for the concrete to be hard and can grow up much faster.

I can't believe this project hasn't gotten higher than that yet! It's been years! It was supposed to have started in 1997!

It looks high and with a strong colum for me! Maybe spanish cranes normally used in construction are to tinny.
